Mietek Szczesniak
Szczeniak has dreamed about the album for many years. His composition for priest Jan Twardowskis poem titled Wiersz z banaem w rodku (English: A Poem with a Ciché Inside), published as a song (sung by Szczeniak) titled Spoza nas (English: From Outside of Us), became a great hit, Szczeniaks most popular radio and greatest hits song.

The artists aim was simple: to share his love for Twardowskis poetry and to move the poems from hearts to heads and mouths, so that they can be sung and danced, and evoke emotions expressed with free laughter and crying, like in Twardowskis poems.

The form was designed so as to add a touch of lightness and emphasize things which are the most important for a poet and composer: warm hope, affirmation of poetic simple-heartedness, distanced and natural  everyday and extraordinary  wisdom.

That is why the poems chosen by Szczeniak are told in compositions which evoke the acoustic, light, and sunny Brazilian music  its clearly distinguished types: bossa nova, samba, chorinjo, and sao.  The whole album is acoustic, with a noble, organic sound.  The content is complemented with great form: it was recorded by Brazilian musicians in the United States. Instruments: guitar, bass, piano, three percussionists, choirs (including Grayna Augucik) and a string quartet arranged by Krzysztof Herdzin.

Mieczysaw Szczeniak has recorded eight solo albums. He received three Fryderyk awards and the Amber Nightingale award during the Sopot Festival. Fans love his talent, unique timbre, and unparalleled feeling among Polish soloists. His artistic activity represents the most unique and refined aspects of music.
